It is so commonplace to use a rideshare APP that no one expects the worst to happen. I’ve had friends hop into the wrong Uber or Lyft by accident and have heard of others hopping into a regular car as opposed to a rideshare car, as well. We’re all on our phones, sometimes we make conversation with the driver, other times we sit and think about what’s going on for the rest of the day. For the most part, we’re checked out of the situation, totally oblivious to the fact that some people use ride share APPs to abduct people.
Many of us forget that suspicious things happen all the time. One time I ordered from Uber Eats and a totally different person (from the one listed on the APP as my driver) delivered my food. I was so focused on getting my meal that I just brushed it off, but allowing things like that to slide is exactly how we open the door for even more suspicious (and sometimes dangerous) experiences.
